Partnership with MP Objects will serve companies around the world, also extend reach of HighJump warehouse management system
MINNEAPOLIS (April 15, 2014)-- HighJump Software, a global provider of supply chain management software, announced that a partnership with MP Objects of the Netherlands will expand a transportation management system (TMS) offering to customers around the world, as well as extend the reach of the HighJump warehouse management system (WMS). MP Objects is the European leader in transport management services, with additional offices in the U.S. and India. The TMS solution features the signature flexibility and adaptability that HighJump Software customers have come to expect, allowing the software to be configured to a company’s exact needs.
With this transportation management system, customers have greater visibility into their multi-modal operations. The need for manual, time-consuming daily route and shipment optimization is eliminated, as the software uses advanced algorithms to determine the least-cost, fastest transport solution by taking into account the best carrier, mode and route. After that is determined, the customer has full visibility of the order as the TMS monitors execution. The solution works with complex routes for multiple carriers and across multiple clients. Customers can also use the TMS to configure rate agreements, subcontractor selection, performance reporting and more.
“The partnership between our transportation management system and the HighJump warehouse management system will give customers more intelligence for better decision making and more automation throughout their supply chain,” said Martin Verwijmeren, CEO, MP Objects. “Our customers demand efficiency and flexibility, and these solutions will deliver both to create a supply chain that can keep pace with a company’s growth and changing needs.”
“Because of the success of our configurable WMS, our customers outside of the U.S. have asked for transportation management solutions that offer the same adaptability and excellent support services,” said Gary Nemmers, senior vice president and general manager, supply chain execution group, HighJump Software. “We are pleased to work with MP Objects to deliver a transportation solution to our global customers and further extend the reach of our warehouse management system.”
The TMS fully integrates with the HighJump Supply Chain Advantage® Suite, including the HighJump warehouse management system, for maximum efficiency and visibility.
